tabernacle experience

Our Vision:

To Assist the Body of Christ to become One with God

Our Mission:

To Participate in the Restoration of The

Tabernacle Experience to the Body of Christ

English: By Rembrandt.

I feel led by the Spirit to lay out a  framework to aid in the restoration of the spiritual fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles.  This is by no means an exhaustive treatise on this subject, but rather just a broad sketch of possible steps to accomplish our worthy goal.

To begin with, we, as ministers of the full gospel of Jesus Christ, should consider working together to restore the final feast.  The reason I believe this is important is because perfection requires that the elect enter into the Tabernacle experience.

Paul says,

“Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:”

Ephesians 4:13

This scripture was partially fulfilled in the book of Acts,

And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.”

Acts 4:32

These scriptures speak of the end result of a Tabernacle experience that every minister should be working towards with their people.  I believe that the  perfect man of Ephesians, as a group, can only be achieved through entering into the Final Feast.

Three steps to perfection

The first step towards the perfection of the saints is, of course, the spiritual fulfillment of the Feast of Passover.  In the church age, this equates to the experience of salvation.  The second step is the spiritual fulfillment of the feast of Pentecost. In the church age this equates to Spirit baptism as  evidence by speaking in other tongues.  The third and final step in this process is the spiritual fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles.  In the church age this equates to the Tabernacle experience of becoming “one” with God the Father. The manifestation of this oneness is Divine Love which is, in turn, spiritual connections between members of the Body of Christ.

Many ministers fail to bring their churches into the unity of the faith because they lack one or more of these necessary experiences.  Frankly, it is not possible to fulfill Ephesians 4:13 without experiencing all three feasts.  It’s Divine Love (not teaching) that brings about the unity of the Spirit leading to the unity of the faith.

Seven Core Principles Of The Tabernacles Movement

The tabernacle movement is based on seven core principles.  These principles give structure to our fellowship, yet does not codify it.

First principle:  working outside the church

In order to accomplish the goal of restoring this final feast we should not seek to change the church from within. Stepping outside organized religion, we focus our efforts and resources on the unchurched.

Second principle: restoring divine order

Secondly, we restore the office and authority of the apostle and prophet. Jesus, of course, is the chief cornerstone and all we do must align with him.  Keeping him in preeminence, the foundation stones of our movement must be laid by true apostles and prophets.    Pastors and teachers should be encouraged to take their proper places under these ministries so that they function as God intended.  The office of evangelist operates primarily outside the church, focusing on sharing this fully restored gospel to the lost.

Third principle: disciples

The third step in our mission is to disciple others in this baptism of love.  The Tabernacle Blessing is not a new or extra biblical doctrine, but rather a restoration of what the first century church lived. The spiritual fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles began when Peter said, “silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”

As we disciple new converts they will begin to experience God’s Divine Love through the laying on of hands. As young men and women grow in this restored truth we will select rise up new leadership to help further this movement.

Fourth principle:  highways and byways

The fourth step focuses on the disenfranchised and disenchanted of society. We, like David, welcome the distressed, indebted, or discontented. Thus  In the beginning, we seek to preach in places where the normative does not frequent. 

Fifth principle:  Young Adults

This movement initially targets  young adults. Those drawn to the message of Divine Love form the “core” of our movement.  Our goal is that the Tabernacle experience become as wide-spread and accepted as salvation or speaking in other tongues.

Sixth principle: church based cooperative business

This movement will also focus upon fostering and promoting business among its members. Spirit led entrepreneurs provide an economic engine to fund our activities.   Adequate funding enables us to promote the Tabernacle Experience effectively.  Those disciples with the aptitude and desire to do business will be encouraged.

Seventh principle:  Decentralization

We should not overly centralize our movement.  If one part is hindered, we want to make sure the remaining parts can still function. The organizing principle of our movement will be,

“Listen, Hear, and Obey On Time.”

To reiterate, the 7 main principles of the Tabernacles movement are as follows.

  1. Concentrate on evangelism of the unchurched.
  2. Seek to restore the office and authority of the apostle and prophet.
  3. Reveal the Tabernacle Experience to new converts.
  4. Seek converts from the outcasts of society, churched and unchurched. 
  5. Seek to make disciples of young adults.  
  6. Promote business among members
  7. Endeavor to keep this movement decentralized.

The restoration of the final feast

In conclusion, it is important that we put action to our faith and bring about the restoration of the final feast. We are tasked with the vision of helping God’s children not only come back to the Garden, but go beyond it. We desire to enter once again into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.  Doing our part, we help bring about the unity of the Spirit through the bonds of love.

Sincerely,

Michael King
